Who are we?
Epidemic Sound is reinventing the music industry. Our carefully curated catalog, with over 35,000 tracks, is tailored for storytellers, streaming services, and in-store soundtracks. Our music is heard in hundreds of millions of online videos daily, across millions of playlist streams, and in thousands of in-store locations. Headquartered in Stockholm, we’re spread across offices in New York City, Los Angeles, Seoul, Hamburg, and Amsterdam. We’re growing fast, have lots of fun, and are taking the music industry with us.
Within engineering, all of us work fullstack and we’re big believers in teamwork and the value of practices like careful code reviews, pair- or mob programming. With our holistic perspective comes a great sense of ownership and autonomy, but we fail and succeed as a team.
